I agree completely it’s regional that’s why I said in my part of the world it’s been a pretty good year. Also the op was talking about prices compared to a year ago and the corn market is certainly better than I expected it would be considering the crop that was raised in many parts of the country. When yields started coming in I expected well under $3 cash so I would say being at $3.50-$3.60 is a pleasant surprise. I realize that the areas that have a poor basis it’s not near as good but I was only commenting on my region because that’s all I know. I didn’t think there were any politics in my post. I certainly didn’t intend for there to be. I was simply commenting on the markets as they are now. Bean market obviously sucks but if we get both tariffs payments even that won’t be too bad at least for this year. I would rather have a higher price instead of a govt payment but those decisions were made well above my pay grade. All I know is that money will certainly help my bottom line.
